SACRAMENTO – Fairytale Town is accepting coats for the News 10’s Coats for Kids, serving as an official drop-off site.
To help inspire the spirit of giving for children and families, Fairytale Town will offer one free child’s admission per coat, with a paying adult. The collection will run through Nov. 28, during operating hours. The collected coats will then be delivered to the News 10 Station.
The News 10’s Coats for Kids drive is celebrating 20 years of collecting coats to help families in the Sacramento area. The drive asks for a donation of new or gently used coats.
Over the last 19 years donors have helped collect and distribute more than 475,000 coats to children and families in need. The News 10’s Coats for Kids goal this year is 25,000 donations to make it to the one half million mark.
“The News 10’s Coasts for Kids drive is a great program, and we are happy to serve as an official drop-off location and extend free admission to encourage participation and donations,” said Sharlene Lal-Hernandez, education and program manager of Fairytale Town.
Coats can also be dropped off at Swansons Cleaners, Rogers Jewelry Co., Century 21 M&M and Associates or the News 10 Studios.
